Swifts fly in from Essex for concert with CMVC this Saturday

Croydon Male Voice Choir takes the stage this Saturday alongside a women’s choir from Essex, the Swift Singers from South Woodham Ferrers. The concert is at Shirley Methodist Church, on June 8, starting at 7.30pm.

The Swift Singers from Essex are flying through Croydon this Saturday

CMVC holds joint concerts with the Swift Singers every two years, at venues alternating between Croydon and South Woodham Ferrers.

The Swifts describe themselves as a “fun-loving ladies choir” and that certainly comes across in their glitzy costumes and exuberant singing.

Both choirs have around 70 members. Each will present their own sets of songs and will come together for a full-on choral duet at the end.

The CMVC repertoire ranges from Soldier’s Chorus to the Presley number You Were Always on My Mind. The Swifts feature several show-biz and musical numbers such as Lullaby of Broadway and Let’s Face the Music.

The Croydon Male Voice Choir offer a terrific evening concert this Saturday

The final joint numbers on Saturday will be the classic Welsh hymn Gwahoddiad and a mix of I Believe and Ave Maria.

“It promises to be a terrific evening,” Kim Ormond, the CMVC chair, said.

Entrance to the concert costs just £10 and tickets are available on the door.
